Bobby Phills could flat out GO. He was just coming into his own as a basketball player too. Tragic ending
The Charlotte Hornets have announced the team will honor and re-hang the jersey of deceased guard Bobby Phills during a ceremony on Nov 1
Dang Mike Scott is 7-for-7, having a nice preseason
My All Redemption Quest team for 2014-15 NBA season PG: Deron Williams SG: O.J. Mayo SF: Carmelo Anthony PF: Josh Smith C: Roy Hibbert
Rookie Kyle Anderson hits back-to-back threes for the Spurs, and it's a 104-88 game. Mike Muscala joins Dennis, Kent, Thabo and Pero now.
Looking to see if those offseason surgeries will get Deron Williams back to an All-Star level or is he in a permanent decline
Expected more from the Deron Williams and Joe Johnson backcourt.
If you thought our 36-point second quarter was good, how about our 37-point third (so far)? 2:30 left in Q3, and our lead is 20.
Jeff, Kyle, Paul and Al are now all in double figures halfway through Q3. Our lead is 9.
Kyle at the buzzer! Nice run by the boys to close the half, and we lead 53-48.
Active hands for the defense tonight. We've forced 12 turnovers so far, and still 2:56 left in the half. We trail 41-40.

Did the A/C get turned off in here? Because we are HOT. First quarter shooting: 6/20 Second quarter shooting: 7/7
Mike Scott's second quarter: 3/3 shooting, 8 points. All in just 3 minutes.
Spurs get the mojo working in Q1 and lead 25-17.
Our shooting stats: Threes: 3/5 Twos: 2/12 http://t.co/D05tWAJ7eh
We've answered their 7-0 start with a 7-0 run of our own.
After spotting the Spurs a touchdown, Al responds with a safety for us.
These staffs know each other well. Assistant coach Neven Spahija hugs it out with Pop pregame. http://t.co/GZavVkyWVH
Jeff, Kyle, DeMarre, Paul and Al on the floor to start things.
The Spurs have the best restroom signs in the league: http://t.co/2GcmG2M1Uh
Speaking of Cleveland and lottery reform, any real reform should address the issue of a single team winning top pick in 3 out of 4 drafts.
UNC closed up shop hard and heavy on Rashad McCants and vilified the man. But look at all the scrambling that's going on in chapel hill now
Whose brilliant idea was it to give away 1st rounders for a 40-year-old? Kobe sign off on that one?
Flea you mad bro? I'd be mad too if my team was going to finish last in the West.
Oh man only 7.4% of the GMs polled think the Hawks will win the Southeast Division this season.
Notice the Lakers and Celtics weren't among the no votes.
T-Wolves got Zach LaVine and Suns got TJ Warren despite having better records than the Hawks, so keep an eye on that.
Hawks made playoffs and got to pick behind a Suns team that missed the playoffs but had a significantly better record.
Lottery tier would be randomized, middle and playoff tier would all pick in reverse order of record.
So the only purpose of the randomly-sized middle tier is to make it impossible for a team to target a certain record to move up a tier.
Originally proposed those teams pick in random order within their range. Now I'm thinking those + playoff teams should pick in reverse order
There should be a random number (3-6 is suggested) of teams that miss playoffs but don't get to participate in the lottery.
Gearon was perfectly aware of the culture that existed within the Hawks organization and only outed it when he saw a benefit for himself.
C-Viv says the league may be pressuring all of Hawks ownership to make 100% of the team available. This would be best possible outcome.
So tanking like the 76ers would have certainly been discouraged by proposed system, but tanking to barely miss playoffs would be rewarded.
A team that barely missed playoffs would have been given a 400% better chance to climb to the top of the lottery than the current system.
The league's proposed lottery reform would not have discouraged teams from tanking to miss the playoffs.
Zach Lowe is correct that Boston has not been a preferred destination for free agents. Usually brought in talent via lopsided trades.
So, in a round-about way, Garnett's willingness to forgo free agency helped make the trade happen and won Boston a title.
This was indeed factually incorrect. Kevin Garnett never signed with the Celtics as a free agent. He chose to forgo free agency by extending
Good job small market NBA teams not falling for the lottery reform scam. First it was the "Wheel" which was an even more obvious talent grab
Brad and Andrew are getting after it... *grabs popcorn*
Max is showing us some love in San Francisco! http://t.co/i9V6fsTusz
